Find a back issue

  1. Went to Sundown twice this week, had appetizers and drinks only but both were very good. Cool atmosphere, diverse crowd, great service. Look forward to trying some of the entrees.
    Excited to go to the Dallas Fish Market for the first time tonight.

  2. Mosied over to Stackhouse Burger for lunch on Thursday. Loved the beer and wine selection although didn’t partake since I had to get back to the office. My 6oz burger with cheddar and grilled jalepenos was delicious. The patio was full given the spring-like temps, will definitely go back.

  3. It was and will continue to be a great week:

    Smoke – My wife had a rare weekend morning off from her second job, so we decided to check out Smoke for brunch. My eggs benedict with pulled pork was good, but her blueberry ricotta pancakes were divine. The house-smoked, thick-cut bacon we got on the side was great, too. It’s really far out for us (we live in Allen), but I do like this place when the occasion arrives.

    TruFire – a Frisco gem that I would make a weekly tradition if I had the scratch. An swarthy pizza and pasta joint serving the best chicken parmigiana anywhere, ever. They don’t bathe it in red sauce, which leaves the DELICIOUS crust nice and crisp, and they top it with a vinegary arugula salad with parmesan strips to cut through some of the richness. Try it, and your previous conception of chicken parm will never do again. Also, good pizzas and sweet potato fries (app). Kinda pricey.

    NOSH – Enjoyed my birthday dinner with the family at the new Plano location. My wife and I loved our one visit to the original Dallas location, and the Plano iteration delivered on our expectations sublimely. Big smiles all around the tables. My red wine poached farm egg with duck confit was a great starter, as were the tempura fried Brussels sprouts (special) and the lobster bisque (special). For mains, I made the right choice with the Kobe burger. Cooked a perfectly pink medium, it was one of the juiciest and most flavorful I’ve ever had. It might have made my lifetime top 3. The only disappointment all night was the croque monsieur, which my mother and a couple others agreed was dry and a bit bland. Still, a fabulous b-day. Terrific service, too. Don’t remember the name, but short, blond, tomboyish – very friendly, efficient and affable.

    The Londoner – This actually won’t happen ’til tomorrow, but I know how it will go. My steak and ale pie will be rich and salty and absolutely perfect with the small mountain of mashed potatoes it comes with. My wife’s chicken and chips will continue to be the best chicken tender plate in town. And when everyone takes his or her first bite of the sticky toffee pudding, they will all be gob-smacked by how good it is. One won’t be enough, we’ll need 2 or 3 at least.

  4. Lunch at “Bee-Best Enchiladas Ever”. WRONG! Worst ever! Aside from the totally, meh food, I was appalled that they have the nerve to keep a tip jar at the counter. For what? No service was provided other taking my order at the counter and then after calling my name, I picked my order up at the counter after it was made. I wasn’t even offered a cup for my drink!

    Lunch at Kay Agnew’s newly opened Bridge Bistro on Riverfront Drive. Great food and, lots of it for very little money.
    Large green salad topped with lots of skinny fried onion rings.
    Crawfish etouffee with a large piece of corn & squash souffle casserole.
    Delicious corn muffins and flavored ice tea. Cost: $11.00 plus tax & tip!

  5. Stay away from One two One on Legacy and 121 – Frisco. Service was terrible, manager was rude. Staff did not communicate – orders came out at different times, cold, incorrect, wrong, bland – just overall an evening that could have been enjoyable spoiled by the restaurant. Also very much over-priced.

  6. Sorry to jump on the One2One hate bandwagon but the new menu/chef is terrible. Inedible salty fries, disappointing lobster pizza (where is the lobster?) and after trying three of the 6 or 7 types of sliders, which were served on store-bought Hawaiian rolls, I have to say WTF. Our server was often MIA but the manager was incredibly nice.
